Lynne Ciochetto

Lynne Ciochetto is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Communication Design, Massey University, Wellington. Her research interests reflect her interdisciplinary background: sociology, anthropology, development studies and graphic design. Her recent focus has been the exploration of advertising and globalization in terms of social and cultural change. Two key areas have emerged: case studies of the globalization of advertising in specific countries—Russia, India, China, Vietnam and Thailand—and, complementing this approach, thematic studies of the market sectors: men, children and women. Her latest research direction is an exploration of the environmental impact of the growth in consumption in emerging economies that is stimulated by advertising and the media. Another area of interest is the documentation of signage. She is finalising the writing of a book for Routledge London: Advertising and globalization in the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China (to be published in 2011).

Peter Crowe

Peter Crowe’s particular interest is design’s interface with management and ‘design as means of participatory knowing’. He contends that designing offers a rigorous methodology for engaging with complexity, challenging suppositions and exploring communicative co-creation of the ‘lifeworld’. In 2007 he integrated these ideas into the development of AUT’s pioneering Design major for the Bachelor of Business programme.

A PhD candidate at Waikato School of Management, Crowe is currently studying marketing and the psychology of evolutionary consciousness. His research utilizes communicative and participatory action to examine the dynamics of individuation and inter-subjectivity within organisations.

Crowe has a background in design, marketing and management, including positions in London, Milan, Rome and New York. Presently a senior lecturer at AUT, he also works as a business consultant and counsellor.

Amanda Yates

Iwi Affiliations: Ngati Whakaue, Ngati Rangiwewehi, Rongowhakaata, Te Aitanga a Mahaki, Ngati Pakeha.

Amanda Yates is an architect and academic. She began her award winning, research-based architectural practice, Archiscape, in 1999. Amanda’s work has been described as a “significant achievement in new century housing in New Zealand […] assiduously rich and complex […] truly remarkable,”1 “the best example of Deleuzian-inspired practice that I have ever seen,”2 and “exemplary models of embodied research practice … original, courageous, imaginative and challenging.”3 Reflecting on her own design practice as a form of research, Amanda has published nationally and internationally in peer-reviewed conferences and publications.

Archiscape’s buildings operate in-between the spatial disciplines of architecture and landscape, space and performance, interior and urban design. Within these interstices Amanda explores her primary interests in design-led research, time-based architectures, contemporary indigenous design and sustainable design – under these influences architecture is reframed, explored as a discipline of time as well as space where interior and exterior are temporal rather than spatial conditions and architecture opens up to its outside.

Amanda’s integration of theory and praxis in her own work—where theory is used as a thinking tool enabling the practitioner to reflect critically upon their creative processes—influences her pedagogical practice: in her honours year design-led research studios she focuses on the development of theoretically informed design processes which are understood to contribute to the production of new knowledge.
Amanda has presented her design research in the United Kingdom, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand. She has exhibited at the City Gallery’s Michael Hirschfeld Gallery and was winner of the Chapmann Tripp Set Designer of the Year award for Think of a Garden at Taki
Rua Theatre. Amanda’s regenerative architecture concept design for Ngati Whatua was published in her paper in the recent Taone Tupu Ora publication by the New Zealand Centre for Sustainable Cities. She is currently the curator and designer of New Zealand’s Architecture Section exhibit in the Prague Performance Design and Space Quadrennial 2011—the exhibit is entitled Performing Space in Oceania and focuses on the temporal architecture of the Pacific.
